The new 25,000 square foot, second-floor Event Center complements its existing banquet lineup. The Event Center’s floorplan accommodates up to 800 guests for sit-down dinners and up to 2,000 for stand-up receptions, trade shows and conferences.

Interestingly, The Event Center’s grand hall is constructed as “black box” space, meaning the room will be well-appointed but intentionally nondescript in color palette and design. Dramatic, high ceilings are painted black in aesthetic harmony with polished natural concrete flooring. Light fixtures and wall coverings are stylish yet neutral.

Clean sightlines further define Rivers’ new black box concept, with unobstructed corner-to-corner views. Large-scale black box rooms are popular in other metropolitan areas and allow meeting and event planners maximum flexibility for tailoring space to deliver unique experiences.

The Event Center features an adjacent 5,000-square-foot pre-function area for receptions or additional exhibits. A generous green room, worthy of rock stars and their entourages or brides and their bridal parties, will be included.
